of America: birds (series)

of America is an intentionally unfinished sentence. It questions what defines being an American today and how the rest of the world perceives this country.

Commercially produced stickers provide a perfect medium for expressing the overwhelming visual noise of American culture. Layered, in a technique inspired by my daughter’s own explorations with stickers as a two-year-old, the chaotic interplay of familiar pop culture elements with the generic expressions of what it is to be a child in the 21st century becomes the tapestry out which I’m trying to form the counterpoint to the chaos.

These images are inspired by plates from John James Audubon's famous tome Birds of America. Birds are unaware of borders, they freely fly over the tallest walls we build without any consideration for their meaning. From state birds to our national symbol of the Bald Eagle, America understands the power of the bird as a symbol of freedom.

However these birds don’t exist. They either went extinct before they were cataloged again or they were a mistake on the part of Audubon and they never existed at all.
